Several questions:

1) Where on the roof did you locate the outside antenna?
2) What type of bracket did you use to attach the outside antenna to the roof? I assume that an appropriate roof attachment bracket did not come with the SureCall Omni kit.
3) Re the ultra low loss cable, did you find its thickness an impediment to snaking the cable through the vent and into the cabinet?
4) Was 10 feet of ultra low loss cable sufficient?
5) What type of internal antenna did you use? Where did you locate it? Did you also use ultra low loss cable from the 4G-X to the internal antenna?

Thank you for your consideration. Regards,


1. Just between the rear skylight and the solar panel next to the fridge vent.
2. Lift and Lay motorized antenna mount by Tarheel. Awesome piece of kit.
3. It's a little cumbersome, but nothing that couldn't be done.
4. Yes.
5. Yes, a one meter cable.

Whomever at Airstream is ordering and allowing self tapping machine screws to be used to fasten into woodwork should be shot.

I knew there was some tweaking needing to be done before I bought my Airstream, but I didn't know I would need to be a full tradesmen to fix this thing!

So far on my new trailer to fix thing's I've done carpentry, plumbing, electrical etc..

Anyone's door been leaking at all? I find a slight rust colored water trail after heavy rains just below the horizontal interior seam of the door. I checked up all around the window trim and top of the door, cannot find any gaps in the sealant. Almost as if it's coming in from the door handle area?

I may take a picture if anyone is good with AS doors.
